My Approach to Helping

​​It may be, if you have been:
~feeling lonely in your marriage
~thinking of having an affair
~already engaged in an affair
~spending time with a friend or coworker that your partner doesn't know about
~sharing deep, personal, emotional conversations with someone other than your partner

There comes a time in most relationships when the "magic" has worn off, kids take priority, life keeps you busy, and you've fallen into some bad relational habits. One day you wake up, realizing you feel disconnected, unloved, unappreciated, dissatisfied... Talking about these feelings is painful; fixing what's wrong takes a lot of work, a lot of cooperation, a lot of compromise. Perhaps you feel like you've tried everything but you just don't know how to repair your relationship.

Maybe someone has caught your attention and the "magic" is back, just not with your partner. It can be frightening and exhilarating- you probably still love your partner but this new attention makes you feel connected, special, sexy, desired... things that have disappeared from or never existed in your current relationship.

If any of this sounds even a little bit familiar, it's time for you to contact me for a free phone consultation. I can help you sort through these confusing emotions, and figure out what you and your partner want and need from your relationship. Sometimes when you feel like you've tried everything, an objective professional is needed to help identify relational patterns you may not be aware of, and make suggestions as to how you can change them for the better. Believe it or not, you truly can regain the love and intimacy that is missing, even if there has been infidelity.

Come and see me. My particular brand of therapy is without judgment; without pressure; without pushing ​for a particular outcome.

More Info About My Practice

I am not on any insurance panels, however I will provide a "superbill" which can be submitted to an insurance company by a client for possible reimbursement. I accept cash, checks and credit cards.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

Most marriage and family therapists (MFT's or LMFT's) don't actually get a lot of couples counseling training in graduate school. Over the years, I have spent countless hours training with some of the best in the business to refine and augment my couples counseling skills so that I can be the best couples therapist possible.

I specialize in helping couples navigate the most difficult and taboo relationship issues- intimacy, infidelity, impending divorce... Don't throw in the towel just yet- come see me. Let's work together to decide if there just might be some hope for your relationship after all. I've found that quite often, there is!
